Quake was one of the first staples at the early LAN parties I had with my friends. Since I didn't have enough money to afford the full game we were limited to four player multiplayer with the demo. Later on when I had a bit more money I found Quake III on sale and played the heck out of that. Quake, Quake II and Quake III had excellent multiplayer which is something that iD hasn't really seemed to master lately. I really enjoyed the packin co-op that Rage came with and the car deathmatch was really fun too. That said, Quake Champions is iD's upcoming arena based multiplayer shooter and it looks like a incredible retelling of Quake III.

If you're like me then you might be really interested in joining the closed beta and if you are you should head over to the Quake site and join. I'm not sure how many people they will let in, but if it's like most betas they will slowly trickle folks in to test the game and servers and then open the flood gates a bit before launch.

I really want another Quake that continues either the Quake 1 story or the Strogg storyline from Quake 2 and 4.

But I'm still definitely looking forward to this.

The strogg storyline in Quake 2 and 4 was really good. I still remember that scene from 4 where they are cutting off your limbs and "borging you up" with Strogg parts. Crazy. Raven software is really good at making impactful games.
